Bluegrass Clinic Postponed

Bluegrass Pleasure and Walking Horse Association
Press Release

The Bluegrass Pleasure and Walking Horse Association (BPWHA) would like to announce that the scar rule clinic originally scheduled for Saturday November 21st in Lancaster Kentucky has been postponed due to the fact that the USDA will be unable to attend along with a last minute schedule change that is affecting the Horse Protection Commission (HPC). We are sorry for any inconvenience that may cause and will try our best to reschedule as soon as possible.

Both scar rule clinics scheduled for Saturday November 14th in Prestonsburg, KY at the Prestonsburg Equine Center at 1900 Chassity Road from 1 PM until 5 PM EST and for Sunday November 15 in Bowling Green, KY at Tommy Loid’s Barn at 1100 South McElwain Road from 1 pm until 5 pm CDT will go on as scheduled and we would like to invite everyone to attend and bring your horses. Doctor Kingston and Dr. Geibb will be in attendance representing the USDA and Donna Benefield along with DQP’S from the HPC will be in attendance. The USDA will have a power point presentation along with literature to hand out. Both the USDA and the HPC will address the attendees and will be open to questions. The USDA will also be bringing the thermograph machine to exhibit and explain how the machine is used.

Just a reminder to everyone that, no names of horses will be taken, and no tickets will be issued. Everyone is welcome to attend and bring show horses of any breed or discipline for evaluation with no worry of being cited.

For more information please contact Bryan Richert at 606-271-0381.
